Samsung is closely following the Android 11-based One UI 3 rollout schedule and even surprised us with a few early updates. Soon after installing new software on its flagship smartphones over the past two years, the South Korean giant is now rolling out Android 11 to the Galaxy Tab S7 and S7 +. However, instead of One UI 3, Android tablets get One UI 3.1, making them the only devices other than the S21 series to have it so far. Now that the Wi-Fi version and the Verizon version have already received an update, AT&T subscribers in a treat…
The update applies to AT&T Tab S7 models with build number RP1A.200720.012.T878USQU1BUAC, 2.8 GB. It was previously available on the Verizon Tab S7 and S7 + models.
As reported TizenHelp, Galaxy Tab S7 (SM-T875), Galaxy Tab S7 + LTE (SM-T975N) and Galaxy Tab S7 + 5G received software update for the first time in South Korea with firmware versions T875NKOU1BUA8, T975NKOU1BUA8and T976NKOU1BUA8, respectively. With a file size of about 2.4 GB, you can connect your tablet to Wi-Fi while downloading it.

Among the new features One UI 3.1 introduces, including Private Share, improved performance and memory allocation, and chat tooltips, seems to be the most interesting – Second Screen, which is Samsung’s answer to Apple’s Sidecar. This allows users to use the Tab S7 or S7 + as a second monitor or drawing tablet with select Samsung Windows PCs – Galaxy Book Flex, Galaxy Book Flex Alpha, Galaxy Book Ion, Galaxy Book S and Notebook Plus. more precisely… But as seen in the image above, it looks like it also works with the Odyssey gaming laptop.
According to the official rollout schedule, the Tab S7 series should receive Android 11 only in March. But since some users are already receiving the update, it should come as no surprise that Samsung will deliver it sooner than expected for other carriers and markets.
One is the ability to continue apps and copy across other devices, allowing you to start right where you left off on your Galaxy S21 series phone.
There is also a wireless keyboard sharing option that allows you to use the Tab S7 + Book Cover Keyboard to write texts on the S21.
Finally, there is Auto Switch, which lets you automatically switch which device is sending audio to your Galaxy Buds Pro based on the situation.
